Technology Resources at the UWB/CC Campus Library

Using your credentials: UW NetID and Cascadia Network Account

Your current affiliation with Cascadia or the University of Washington will determine your ability to access UW Libraries resources both on, and off-campus.  The student-use computers in the Campus Library are funded by Student Technology Fees of Cascadia College and the University of Washington Bothell, and allow current students or employees of either institution to log into them while using the Library.  Current Cascadia users can use either their Cascadia Network Account, or the UW NetID they create, to sign into these computers. 

CASCADIA STUDENTS: You should receive an email from Cascadia with your Cascadia Network Account the first business day after registering for your first class.  (Follow those instructions to change your default password and setup your access to Microsoft 365). You must change your default password before you can use it to create a UW NetID or access online resources. If your Cascadia Network Account password is expired, or if you have never logged into a Cascadia system for the first time to reset your password, authentication for any remotely accessed resource will fail.  If you have any issues with the first-time setup of your Cascadia account, please contact the Cascadia Information Services Help Desk for assistance. 



Your network account or NetID is assigned to you forever.  Do not let others use it, and never share your password via email!

Cascadia Network Accounts

Cascadia Students can also use their Cascadia Network Account to log in to computers in the Campus Library. Simply enter your credentials in the form: where "username" is your Cascadia Network Account username.

UW VPN Service - Husky OnNet

Husky OnNet (HON) provides current UW students and employees a secure connection (using the BIG IP Edge Client) to the UW network from remote locations.  When configured for "All Internet Traffic," it can also be used as an alternative to the Libraries off-campus proxy service for connecting to UW Libraries subscribed resources.
